Technology Marketing Corporation has named the Packet8 Tango Video Terminal Adapter a 2007 TMC Labs Innovation Award winner. According to Tom Keating, CTO and TMC Labs Editorial Director at TMC, "The Innovation Awards exemplify the best and the most unique products and services that this industry has to offer. 8x8, Inc. has demonstrated a commitment to quality, and a commitment to the further development of the IP communications industry through its Packet8 Tango VTA. 8x8 deserves this great honor, and I look forward to seeing other innovative solutions from them as they continue to contribute to the future of IP communications."
The Packet8 Tango VTA, introduced in January 2007 at the Consumer Electronics Show, takes the concept of traditional VoIP terminal adapters one step further with the addition of advanced H.264 video. This sleek-looking 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 1.38" free standing device incorporates a built-in, high resolution 5" LCD color display and 180 degree rotating CCD camera to deliver advanced full-motion video at up to 30 frames per second along with crisp, delay-free audio. In addition to unlimited local and long distance calling to any U.S. and Canada phone number, Packet8 Tango users receive unlimited worldwide video calling to any Packet8 video-enabled endpoint, i.e. another Packet8 Tango, the Packet8 DV326 desktop videophone or 8x8's voice and video softphone, Packet8 Softalk.
